Burnet Woods: Trailside Nature Museum – Cincinnati OH

Description

“Trailside Nature Museum: This fieldstone building was completed in 1939, a combined project between the PWA and the CCC and designed by Freund. It reflects the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright with its horizontal design and rustic stone work. All external corners are rounded, as is the central chimney.”

It is one of the approximately 67 structures (about half of the existing 135 in the Cincinnati Parks system) made by New Deal workers.

  1. For some reason, the “New Deal Agencies” listing does not include the WPA, which was obviously involved with the project, as evidenced by the photograph right next to the text!
